New Job List

Nails broken: 2
Mistake Made: 6 that I can think of off the top of my head
Blisters: 3
Lunches spent sitting in Subway and reading: 2
Incidents of Whispering that I am Somehow Convinced are About my Incompetance: All

Days Worked: 2

But this is not a negative report, believe it or not. I'm tired as hell, yes. My feet hurt, yes. My right hand has been torn to oblivion by scary revolving filing system, yes. But I hope that with some time I will get used to this and maybe even be good at it. I want the girls to like me. The only thing that is really bothering me is that right now I am more a nuisance to them than anything else.

Time to go to bed: now?

Sigh, it's always tough to start a new job. You'll be a pro in no time.

No worries -- the first week on a new job is the worst. You don't know where anything is, you're still feeling out the people, and you have to ask asinine questions because you don't know where anything is. Don't worry about it, everyone has been there. Give yourself time to catch on to the learning curve. In the meantime, 7pm bedtimes are okay. When I first started my last job at you-know-where, I needed after work naps. Seriously. But it gets better. Just breathe and do the best you can. :)

In a month they'll be asking themselves, "How did we ever get anything done without Meg?"

You're invaluable.

If it makes you feel better, I spent my first week at work misguidedly befriending an older lady who turned out to be the Devil in JC Penney Clothes, and was subsequently fired six months later. I also wept because I didn't know how to properly fill out a FedEx mailer. But within weeks, I was Queen of Audit. Okay, maybe months. But still! You're way more awesome than me, so the learning curve should be significantly better!

In what world am I way more awesome than you? Bizzaro World?

You are the Queen of Audit! I am but a lowly deskperson.

Plus you are funnier than me and your rapping is just as good.
